Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: PLEASE STOP WITH THE ITUNES

But my Apple products make me feel so sophisticated and creative. It helps me feel like my electronic devices aren't just tools or entertainment, but a true statement about my individuality, not to mention a great addition to my wardrobe. Since my purchases of everything Apple, and subsequent bankruptcy, I've never felt so free, so much better than everyone else, and how much I truly stand out from the rest of the pack. Furthermore, deep in my heart, I honestly believe that Steve Jobs knows what is best for me in every aspect of my life.

it is simple really.

some people think that sophistication and evolution in design is reflected in the addition of more complexity and buttons and everything.

others believe that sophistication and evolution in design
is reflected in the elimination of the interface complexity.

two different views of tech evolution.

if you think something is more sophisticated because it has more buttons you like pcs if you thinnk something is more sophisticated if it has less buttons to do the same thing, then you are a mac user

yes, and for a small fee I will put my apple sticker on my car so that everyone knows that I am better than them because I bought a computer that looks cute for double the price! I hate those facist PC's that make you have to learn how to use them. Real Bohemians like their electronics cute, pastel and so easy to use a senior in a nursing home can use them.

I use a Mac, and I don't have a tude or a lifestyle about it, any more than I do about my choice of toasters or vacuum cleaners. Did Steve Jobs steal all your lunch monies in 2nd grade or something? I don't really see that much difference between modern PCs and Macs, except that there is 1/2 the software available for Macs. Oh yeah, and the virus thing...

Flame on, I'd expect no less...

why so sensitive about your computer cueball? You're not going to make this very easy to stop bashing Apple.

Well, that's very true. It just seemed strange to condemn all Apple users because of the few ultra-smug ones (and there's no call for that smugness, I agree). Kind of like condemning all Deadheads because of a few fuck-ups amongst the multitude. It's the generalization I was sensitive to, I spose. Bash away... :)

Bash away... :)

EXCELLENT! I shall : )

my main problem is for the life of me I do not get the attitude that somehow it is evil corporatism to have a pc but artistic to have an Apple. Apple is EVERY bit as corporate, actually to me they are worse because they are proprietary rather than being open architecture. Maybe they're easier to use, I don't know BUT they're not so special to me that I'd pay four times the amount for something like a keyboard. Also, you have to go to their " special store?" Funny, they have no problem routing you out of the Country for phone support though. Even something as simple as downloading MP3's ( oh I'm sorry I fucking tunes, it's more special ) for my kid has to turn into a one way street with them.

I'd say I agree with you except I encounter the smugness far more than I encounter those who just prefer Mac over Windows.
